THE HARDY'S ARE PRESENTLY IN BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA GETTING OUR DAUGHTER SETTLED IN HER NEW APARTMENT WHICH WILL BE HOME FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS AS SHE IS ATTENDING QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY (QUT) STUDYING PODIATRY.  THERE ARE 2 CAMPUSES AND HER APARTMENT IS SITUATED RIGHT BETWEEN THE 2, ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF HER CLASSES WILL BE AT THE KELVIN GROVE CAMPUS.

THE CITY IS MODERN, CLEAN, VIBRANT WITH MANY INTERESTING THINGS TO DO AND SEE.  YESTERDAY WE VISITED THE WORLD'S LARGEST KOALA SANCTUARY.  WE TOOK A 90 MINUTE BOAT CRUISE UP THE BRISBANE RIVER AND SAW A BEAUTIFUL SANCTUARY WHERE WE HELD KOALAS, PETTED KANGAROOS AND SAW MANY TYPES OF REPTILES, MAMMALS AND MARSUPIALS THAT ARE INDIGENOUS TO AUSTRALIA.  A VERY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE AND HAS BEEN VISITED BY QUEENS, POPES AND MANY OTHERS OVER THE YEARS AS IT HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE SINCE 1929.  THE PARK IS EXTREMELY WELL RUN AND SPOTLESS.  

THERE ARE MANY PARKS THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY STUNNING WITH THEIR FAUNA AND WILDLIFE.  EVERYONE IS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. TRAFFIC RUNS SMOOTHLY AND PEDESTRIANS OBEY THE RULES AS JAYWALKING BRINGS WITH IT A $200 TICKET.  ONE THING IS IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE.  I HAVE NOW HAD A $20 FRANKFURTER (HOTDOG) AND THE MINIMUM WAGE IS $22/HR.  YOU RENT YOUR APARTMENT BY THE WEEK WHICH RESULTS IN 52 WEEKS OF RENT RATHER THAN 12 MONTHS (48 WEEKS).

WE HAVE RENTED A MOTORHOME STARTING TOMORROW FOR 2 WEEKS AND WILL BE HEADING UP TO CAIRNS AND THE GREAT BARRIER REEF WHICH SHOULD BRING US SOME WARMER WEATHER.  IT IS NOW WINTER WITH THE DAYTIME WEATHER IN THE 20'S AND NIGHTS DOWN TO THE SINGLE DIGITS BUT NO WHERE NEAR 0.  BRIGHT SKIES AND CLEAR DAYS WHICH MAKES IT GREAT FOR WALKING.  THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY IS A LARGE PEDESTRIAN MALL WITH MANY SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS.

ALL IN ALL THIS IS A VERY NICE CITY TO BE LIVING IN AS OUR DAUGHTER SHANNON WILL BE FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS.  WE WILL BE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING HER GRADUATION AS A PODIATRIST AS SHE WILL BE JOINING US AT OUR FOOT CLINIC IN TORONTO.  WE SHALL BE COMING BACK SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS TO VISIT SHANNON AS WELL AS ATTEND HER GRADUATION.
